MicroStrategy Announces Support For 64-Bit Linux

MicroStrategy 8 running in 64-bit mode is designed to support more users and allow the building of more complex applications.

MicroStrategy has released a version of its chief software platform that's certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the business intelligence firm said Friday.

MicroStrategy 8, introduced this year, handles reporting, analysis and monitoring through a Web interface that's designed to make BI tasks more approachable for broad user bases. MicroStrategy 8 running in 64-bit mode can support more users and allows the building of more complex applications, the vendor said.

Linux joins the platforms MicroStrategy already supports, which includes Windows, AIX and Solaris. Linux is gaining broader acceptance in IT circles, and open-source is slowly making headway within the practice of BI generally, especially with reporting tools.

"Our customers have sophisticated business intelligence applications, and the combination of 64-bit Linux with MicroStrategy 8 delivers powerful new capabilities that can scale to meet our customers' ever-growing requirements," said MicroStrategy COO Sanju Bansal in a statement.
